Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We spent the weekend at the Festival of Books trying desperately to figure out how to get into Hogwarts Platform (or Diagon Alley) but we spent the last week doing the following:

- We tried to get someone to lose their job.
- We wanted to tear the Hollywood Sign down.
- The war on oversized cars in compact spaces was renewed.
- We got tourist trapped at Universal Citywalk.
- You told us your favorite local breakfast place.
- Despite all the discussion of our elite clubs, we still don't know who the membership is.

The Week in Full
